“I am all yours, my Queen, my mother, and all that I have is yours.”
These were the words uttered by Legionaries on island who assembled at San Antonio Parish last March 12, 2017 for the celebration of the Acies – the yearly renewal of consecration to the Blessed Mother. This Latin term which means “an army set in battle array” is an annual function of the Legion where members gather to renew their fealty to Mary. It is a way to reaffirm the commitment to serve as soldiers of Mama Mary, and together ask for help to continue the mission for sanctification of souls through prayers and apostolic works. The celebration was led by its Spiritual Director, Fr. Leo Neil Bullos, OAR, who also delivered the homily for the Eucharistic celebration. He acknowledged the efforts of all members – both the young and young-at-hearts, and encouraged them to persevere. After the mass, a fellowship ensued at the Social Hall.
